Event Details

The world premiere of Brian Howard’s Last Blues brings together an ensemble of Australia’s most influential and talented exponents of new music. Continuum Sax are joined by MATCH percussion, conductor Roland Peelman and violinist Natsuko Yoshimoto presenting a rare opportunity to hear the work of one of Australia’s most respected composers. Brian Howard’s Last Blues, borrowing its title from Cesare Pavese’s evocative poem, invokes memory and loss through a compelling and yet fragile dialogue between the violin and ensemble. This intriguing and innovative concert also features new works by Margery Smith and Mary Finsterer. Supported by ABC Classic FM.
